Hey folks,

Here are the changes for Fury and Concentration coming in 5.4.

Quote:
Note: All changes below are currently in development and are subject to change before being released.

Marauder
Fury
  • Increased the damage done by Bloody Slashes by 35%
Sentinel
Concentration
  • Increased the damage done by Burning Slices by 35%
DevNotes: The Fury / Concentration discipline only needed a small boost to bring it up to its target DPS, so increasing the damage dealt by Bloody Slashes / Burning Slices was all it took to do the trick.

My main is concentration sent. I play it for most of the time, and i think it doesnt need any changes at all :/ if played correct it may do good dps, iam often r1-r3 dpser on warzones.

Anyway, all 3 sent specs doesnt need any buff or nerfs at all. They are in perfect condition.

Yep, that's around what I found too. A bit weird considering they said Fury would be at 2.5% above target DPS, and with this there's still below most of the 'at target dps' group, not to mention below Virulence, which should according to Bioware be 2.5% below target dps, but seems to be at target dps. Seems to me like they're not really considering the 'quasi-burst' and 'quasi sustained' groups. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing imo

Is this is for real or is it a joke? This is like 0.3-0.5% damage buff? You would consider this effort in balancing a discipline? You needed 9 month of evaluation to come-up with that

So........ Lemme get this straight, A slight dps increase was warranted and not a rework to make it viable any more. GG
I really sometimes wonder if devs play the specs they "Balance (Tm)"

shouldn't fury parses be at around 10.1k dps after the buffs? I mean...this is a 100-110 dps increase, so I highly doubt we'll see a good crit parse reach 10.1k dps. Why not buff Bloody Slashes by 100 percent?

I get a feeling the target dps isn't 9800, but closer to 9650-9700.
